Historically there has been only limited coordination of service among the 5 independent transit districts in southwestern Connecticut. Each transit district is governed by its own board of directors and conducts its operations totally independent of the others. The purpose of this study is 1) to investigate the constraints to interdistrict transit services (administrative, financial, etc.), and 2) to evaluate possible service destinations and suggest routings to these sites, if warranted. This report provides a description of the 5 transit districts in southwestern Connecticut (Greater Bridgeport, Milford, Norwalk, Valley, and Westport) and the 2 regional planning agencies (Greater Bridgeport and Valley Regional Planning Agencies) participating in this project. The study investigates the possibilities of interconnecting services by examining the regulations, establishment, and operations of the transit districts. (Some routes pre-dated the establishment of the transit districts.) The report provides a list of potential destinations and sites for interdistrict services. A 4-phased program of administrative and operational improvements is recommended to improve transit services in southwestern Connecticut.
